Swell Summary

A new large northwest swell will be steadily building throughout the day today and is expected to exceed advisory thresholds during the afternoon along exposed north and west facing shores. This swell should peak Wednesday night into Thursday near High Surf Warning levels. An extension to the High Surf Advisory (HSA) will also likely be needed as another reinforcing northwest swell arrives Thursday night into Friday. Lastly, since this current swell is more westerly, surf could reach advisory thresholds along west facing shores of the Big Island by early Thursday morning.

A new out-of-season south swell will be filling in along south facing shores today. Surf along south facing shores could reach advisory thresholds later today into Thursday.
